Loose Talk Costs Lives

 Loose talk costs lives
 People like to play
 We're basically the same
 We never lie
 Loose talk costs lives
 
 Don't look at me as if you don't remember me at all
 There was laughter, there was pain
 But I won't make the same mistake I made
 You are too beautiful to me
 I hide my tears inside the rain

 Am I the soul you cast your spell upon
 I had control and now it's gone
 Or are you someone who controls my heart and mind
 And I will never say a word
 And I will never say goodbye
 
 Loose talk costs lives
 People like to play
 We're basically the same
 We never lie
 Loose talk costs lives

 I can see that someone hung a sign around your heart
 And it reads "do not return"
 And there is so much trouble that I could cause
 Someone as beautiful as you
 You can feel my candle burn
 
 And I still recall some starry night
 We had it all, we held on tight
 I promised I would come to you and catch you if you fall
 And they will never knoe about us
 For just one moment you were mine
  
 Loose talk costs lives
 People like to play
 We're basically the same
 We never lie
 Loose talk costs lives
 For just one moment you were mine 
 Loose talk costs lives
 (Our moment held in time)
 People like to play
 We're basically the same
 We never lie
 Loose talk costs lives
